Enslaver Movie Theater CEO Bans Madonna For Texting


Last week we reported on Madonna‘s insistence on texting through a screening of “12 Years a Slave” at the Alamo Drafthouse and then calling someone who politely asked her to stop an “enslaver” because it was for business. Now the CEO of the chain has taken to Twitter to throw down his banhammer (like a boss) and repress the world’s most notable pop star.

After hearing of the news a few days ago, Tim League – founder of the Texas-based cinema chain – fired off this tweet:

When Entertainment Weekly caught up with him, he said it started off as an offhand joke as “a means to get the issue out there, that it is rude to text during movies.” But now, after giving it some thought, he’s sticking to his guns and enforcing the ban on the pop superstar (even if she doesn’t care):

“Yeah, I’m serious, but I don’t think it really affects her life that much.”

Soon detractors began chiming in, saying  Madonna should be allowed to act as rude as possible because she’s Madonna. But League wasn’t having any of that. Once again, he’s right.

So Tim League gets our badge of honor for running a quality business, caring for customers and ensuring everyone can watch brutal, horrific depictions of slavery in peace.
